Makin' a Mess: Flour Play

Makin' a Mess Flour Play There's nothing Harris likes better than to get really, really messy. One of his favourite things to do is to play in a big tray full of plain old flour. The great thing about this sort of play is that he can bring his cars, trains, buckets, shapes, everything really, into it. A good tray full of flour will keep Harris happy for a long time, the only problem is he needs a really good dusting down at the end as you can see from the pictures!! So, next time you're looking for something for the kids to do why not try a bit of flour play? Written by Melanie Evans on Thursday, 28 July 2011. Posted in Environmental Education and Wildlife, East Anglia Tags at home About the Author Melanie Evans About Me & MineIeuan and Melanie 35, Harris 2 and Gilby 6 days old. For our autistic son Harris, the countryside is a place of freedom for running, exploring and discovering, come rain or shine. We wrap up and head out whatever the weather with our two dogs by our sides. Any adventure involving nature, fresh air and preferably some mud and we couldn't be happier.Favourite place in the world Chanonry Point, the Black Isle, Scotland. Watch the biggest bottle-nosed dolphins in the world, wild, literally metres from your feet.Favourite things to do outdoors We love to explore the wild areas of Britain from the Highlands of Scotland to the Norfolk coast. Rock pooling, bug hunting, bird ringing, scavenger hunts, puddle jumping, riding bikes, if it takes us outdoors we'll try it. Comments (2) burystjen 29 July 2011 at 20 08 | # This is a great idea! I've done lots of sand and water play but I hadn't thought of playing with flour. Handy it's so cheap too. I'm sure my kids would love it - although perhaps not as much as Harris. What a joyful expression! reply Fiona Moore 07 August 2011 at 17 46 | # Harris looks like he is having a blast!My two will spend hours playing in an old plastic tub of rice and beans. Sometimes it really is that simple. reply Leave a comment You are commenting as guest. Submit comment jQuery(function($) { $('#comments').Comment({ cookiePrefix
